Earth Native Nature School is a weekly nature education course for homeschooled children or children in alternative education programs. During weekly nature school, students and instructors work closely in a variety of settings to develop skills that will lead to a deeper knowledge of the natural world and authentic connections to nature, awaken sensory awareness and cultivate knowledge of place, as well as build self confidence and peaceful interpersonal relationships. At Earth Native, our unique teaching methods center around “Coyote Mentoring”, a method of teaching and learning that is based on education models used by indigenous populations across the world for thousands of years. Our “invisible school” teaching philosophies are based on natural learning cycles that use your child’s passions and natural inspirations as the spark that drives their education in the outdoors. Each week at Earth Native Nature School, children will explore, hear inspiring stories, practice primitive and wilderness survival skills, play games and practice core routines to develop strong skills and knowledge in areas such as: Edible and Medicinal Plants, Wildlife Tracking, Bird Language, Ecology, Wilderness Survival, Natural Navigation, Primitive Arts and Crafts ...and much more!
